River Of Blood

The land I live in, it has no borders

It's under my feet wherever I go

Around the world in every corner

There's always a family or a friend I know

I've seen myself in all their faces

I hear my voice when they sing a song

The path I walk is nothin' but a trace

Of a river of blood runnin' pure and strong

The river of blood starts with a trickle

High on a mountain when the world is new

It flows through time and gathers the memories

Washes 'em down over me and you

From the ring of Kerry to the streets of London

The land down under to the USA

Many have tried but none can contain it

The river of blood keeps makin' its way

It's a river of blood in a valley so wide

It's cuttin' its course with a current of pride

My soul finds mercy, my heart such peace

I get down to the bank, I fall down on my knees

Drink from the river of blood

Sometimes I walk through a foreign city

And people will turn, stop and stare

There's somethin' strange that they sense about me

The sound of my speech and my curly red hair

For a little while I might be lonesome

But I know I won't be lost for long

Around the bend at the bottom of the hill

The river of blood is runnin' pure and strong

It's a river of blood in a valley so wide

It's cuttin' its course with a current of pride

My soul finds mercy, my heart such peace

I get down to the bank, I fall down on my knees

Drink from the river of blood

The land I live in, it has no borders

It's under my feet wherever I go

Around the world in every corner

There's always a family or a friend I know

I see myself in all your faces

And I hear my voice when you sing a song

The paths we walk are nothin' but traces

Of a river of blood runnin' pure and strong

It's a river blood, it don't have fire

I'm down on my knees
